Soup's On!

Buttermilk Biscuits made from this Hot Roll No Rise Dough recipe

1 tbsp yeast
1 tbsp sugar
1/2 cup warm water
1/2 cup oil
2 cups sour milk, buttermilk, or yogurt
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 tsp baking soda
5 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
7 cups flour (you can do half whole wheat half white flour if desired)

Dissolve yeast in the water with the sugar. Add remaining ingredients. Mix and knead well.

This dough will keep in the frig for two weeks. You can freeze it too and it defrosts nicely. I like to keep some on hand all the time though it takes no time at all to mix up and bake.

It's really versatile dough. I've made pizza roll ups, pizza crust, biscuits (the favorite by far), cinammon rolls, bread sticks, or even donut holes.

I bake at 425 for about 10 to 12 minutes for the biscuits. I made tons last night and brought them out this morning for breakfast with honey or jam on top. Yummo!

Hardy Turkey Vegetable Soup (from my friend Susan)

1 lb lean ground turkey (I've also used mild italian turkey sausage as pictured here)
1 can great northern beans (or pintos)
1 medium onion (I leave almost all onions out of everything- this batch turned out great without them)
2 small zucchini, quartered lengthwise and sliced
1 can Italian diced tomatoes, undrained
1 large carrot cut julienne strips
3 cans reduced sodium beef broth
1 tbsp dried parsley flakes
1 jar garden-style or any meatless pasta sauce
2 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp pepper
1 can kidney beans, rinsed and drained
1 tsp hot pepper sauce (I skip it when using the sausage)
1 cup uncooked small shell pasta

In a Dutch oven coated with non-stick cooking spray, cook turkey and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Add zucchini, carrot: cook and stir one minute longer. Stir in the broth, pasta sauce, beans, tomatoes, parsley, oregano, pepper, and pepper sauce. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 45 minutes. Meanwhile, cook pasta according to package directions. Just before serving, stir in pasta. Makes ten servings.

I love this soup! The kids eat it pretty well and it is fantastic reheated for lunch. I freeze it in small one cup containers to have for lunch. Again, yummo!
